spark and work

Friday, February 22, 2013

I work with some hostile people.

Am I really that annoying?

I shared my spark page with two coworkers on my current contract assignment and I am already seeing a closer rapport. "Yes, I did notiee you are wearing an armband, that's what it does?"

We may be different in work styles and opinions, but underneath we are all just folk. I hope I can connect with a few more ladies and lose the antagonism that detracts from service delivery.

Underneath we have a beating and bleeding heart! We are not so different.

    GRR. I don't like people like that.

Hugs to you for being a kind person.

It's tough to be brave and stick to your values when others trample you down.

Thank you for being who you are.

Let the diamond in you shine, shine, shine.

    People always live up to or down to your expectations. Keep up the positive!

    Keep pushing the positivity, it's better than giving in to their negativity! You can't win them all. Have a good day : )

    So you work with hostile people. If that is the way they choose to be then don't take it personally. You are probably not that annoying. They may be suffering from chronic irritability.
While you can't choose your coworkers, you can choose your friends. Working with people who have a toxic attitude is one thing. I suggest you don't hang around with them.
When I was working, I was cordial, polite and helpful with my coworkers. I treated them the way I would want to be treated. However, I watched, listened and learned. People who were chronically dissatisfied with work and life in general were people who stayed on my coworkers list as I had no desire to foster a closer relationship. Why hang around with negativity when there are other people who bring fun and laughter into your life.
